This morning I had a client call me at the ramp and tell me that the weather was too bad to go. We had been back and forth over a couple of days about times and number of participants. Where I was the rain was nearly over and it was barely blowing but where he was it was raining hard and blowing. Needless to say I had already spent most of effort, time and money to make his trip a reality so it was more than a lost morning.
I have been pretty much a striper fishing guide for the last few weeks. Now some variety, today I have a father and son fishing trip on freshwater. I am of course a little nervous to do something that I have not done for a while but I know that it will be a great day on the water. I hope to have a few pictures to post later today.
Also next week I have been asked to take a family to a salt marsh to see what lives there. That will definitely move me out of my box and help me recall all of my occasionally used marsh facts. I am looking forward to the opportunity.
I realized this morning that I have been fishing with families with young children pretty regularly for the last week or so. Last evening it was a family with an eighteen year old son and a four year old daughter. The kids are great fun to have alone because of their excitement. The difficult part is trying to balance the kid fishing with the bigger fish for the adults. The kids care about catching fish and you need to catch some pretty steadily to keep the interest up. The adults and older kids are dreaming of the big fish that I show in advertising.
